Week’s balance: IMF tranche, slap in Russia’s face, and "honest budget"

Executive Directors of the International Monetary Fund decided to disburse the third tranche of the loan for Ukraine, the National Bank eased forex restrictions and lowered the discount rate, while the Government has tabled in Parliament a draft budget for 2017- these are the main economic news of the past week.

The main news of the past week was the long-awaited decision of the IMF to continue cooperation with Ukraine and allocate the third tranche of the loan amounting to $1 billion.

In these periods, the government was changed in Ukraine and a number of unpopular social reforms were implemented, while the IMF continued to negotiate, delaying their decision. One of the reasons for the suspension of a cooperation program was a problem with the launch of the system of electronic declaration, which started its work on September 1. This actually influenced the positive decision of the IMF and the disbursement of the tranche. The Fund also noted the first signs of the recovery of Ukraine’s economy. The IMF managing director, Christine Lagarde, has pointed to the pickup of activity in Ukraine, and the decrease of inflation. The country has seen its gross international reserves and bank deposits rising. "This progress owes much to the authorities' program implementation, including sound macroeconomic policies, bold steps to bring energy tariffs to cost-recovery levels, and measures to rehabilitate the banking system,” Lagarde said in her comments following the meeting of the Executive Board.......................
